Mass Street Music owners Jim Baggett and John Flynn, along with Mass Street luthier Josh Baldridge and our buddy from Taylor Guitars, Eric Sakimoto, are all headed to Winfield – the Walnut Valley Festival – this Wednesday! This incredible music festival, taking place in Winfield, Kansas on September 18-22 is in its 42nd year and is always a great gathering whether you’re picking in a contest or hanging out with friends at one of the exponentially fun campsites. We’re also really looking forward to all of this year’s performers which include Beppe Gambetta, Stephen Bennett, The Grascals, Pete Huttlinger, John McCutcheon and so many more.
As usual, you can find Mass Street Music’s booth right under the grandstand at this year’s festival. We’ll have some gorgeous custom Taylor guitars including a Cocobolo 12 Fret, Sinker Redwood GA, custom Collings (including a custom D1A VN, a CJMhaSSSB) and more, plus beautiful Martins, as well as a few vintage surprises. Of course we’ll have a great selection of accessories too including picks, strings, tuners and everything else you might need to keep playing on into the wee hours. We’ve even got a few harmonicas, kazoos and jaw harps for kids and folks who maybe didn’t bring an instrument, but want to get in on the playing action.
In celebration of our 30th Anniversary this year, we’ll also be having a daily drawing at Winfield for a sweet prize pack which includes a T shirt with our newly redesigned logo, a clip on tuner, guitar cleaning cloth and more. Just stop by our booth under the grandstand and toss your name in the prize bucket each day for a chance to win.
Last but not least, a couple of fun new items this year include coozies to keep your beverages cool, and some new ‘Flynn approved’ ball caps with our new logo, designed by Chris Millspaugh – plus a very special Mass Street 30th Anniversary/Winfield T shirt. Stop by and say hello!
